For all of you who do not know me personally, I love zombies. For many years I’ve been obsessed (and I would like to think it was before zombies made their way up the “favorite monster” ladder). I have such a strong zombie infatuation that I will dress up like a zombie for as many events in Philly as possible. That being said, here is a trailer for A.D.
This is fucking fantastic. Seriously. I’ve watched this trailer multiple times and it’s just perfect. Animated zombies is something that isn’t big in the entertainment industry and, when it is, it’s usually goofy and not scary at all (i.e. Scooby Doo, Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, etc.)
But this is different. I’m actually quite scared of the zombie in the trailer. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that he’s missing a jaw or dragging a corpse but, either way, he’s terrifying!
A.D. is written by Haylar Garcia and the trailer was directed by Ben Hibbon (CodeHunters) and produced by Bernie Goldmann (300). More information about the movie and an interview with it’s creators can be found here!

Philly Zombie Crawl will host their annual Zombie Pub Crawl up South Street. For most of us this has become a tradition; a tradition better than eating dinner with Uncle Lou farting in the seat next to you, having children screaming around the house, and experiencing the family argument about why Aunt Tracy has had 3 failed marriages and wants to wear white at her 4th wedding. Can you tell the behavior of South Philly families has forever scarred me?
ANYWAY, The zombie crawl starts at 6:00pm with pregaming and zombifying at Tattooed Moms (makeup costs $10.00 and is definitely worth it. They know how to make one hell of a zombie face!) The crawl officially kicks off at 7:45pm where zombies will gather outside Mom’s for the traditional “around the block and down the alley” walk. Then the zombies will disperse with one of four zombie packs: Blood pack, Gore pack, Guts pack, Brain pack. Packs are a new idea this year…due to overcrowded bars last year. Being in a pack should allow better drink accomation and service all night long!
The night ends with a Zombie dance party at Fluid nightclub. No cover till midnight.

Here’s a few tips for all Zombie Crawl virgins:
-People are really creative with their costumes…start working on yours now!
-In need of supplies? Halloween Masquerade is my place of choice but they can get kind of pricey. Last year they had a great deal: if you bought zombie related supplies from there they gave you a discount. I didn’t see that mentioned on the website for this year but it wouldn’t hurt to try! Another good place is Party City on Oregon Ave.
-Take a picture with Zombie Jesus…he’s the leader of this whole thing!
-Make sure to share your pictures on the Zombie Crawl website!
